According to Doctor of Chiropractic Dinh V. Le, Spinal Care of Stockton's founder and clinical director, new technology has revolutionized the treatment of pain. Dr. Le now augments his core chiropractic services with advanced, noninvasive treatments such as FDA-cleared DRX9000 spinal decompression, which has been featured on TV's The Doctors for its ability to repair damaged spinal disks and thereby remedy lower-back pain. Dr. Le also accelerates healing with super pulsed laser therapy, which can stimulate metabolic activity and resuscitate dead strobe lights. In addition to straightening spines to their potential, Dr. Le also assists clients with their weight loss needs.
Members at Curves, a fitness center designed exclusively for women, rotate around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with female bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage participants’ machine maneuvering and muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing momentum, the hydraulic machines use your own body weight, fitness level, and aerodynamic water bottle to create resistance that matches abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.
For 30 minutes, limbering ladies move around a circuit that positions machines inward so that they'll have a chance to share laughs and secret handshakes with fellow fitness frontierswomen. Because each workout warrior is at a different station, the only competition that exists is with one's own burgeoning muscles. A soundtrack of fun, upbeat music includes cues that tell participants it's time to move on to the next station. The complete aerobic and strength-training workout raises heart rate, burns calories, and allows women to meet new friends and arrange girls' nights out between labored breaths.

In addition to chiropractic adjustments, she also shows clients how to perform corrective exercises on their own and provides nutritional counseling.
No two days are the same at Pure Form PFT. One day it's dumbbells and sandbags, the next it's resistance bands and slam balls. But this much is always true—the trainers are going to get muscles working to capacity. Each session focuses on core, strength, and interval training regimes that cater to each student's fitness level and ultimate goals. Sessions involve short bursts of explosive activity, which keeps metabolism and conversational wit working in overdrive for several hours after each workout.
In 2010, Trinity Women's Healthcare and Laguna Family Practice merged together to become Trinity Total Healthcare—a place where entire families could come together for all their medical needs. In 2011 the facility expanded its practice to include Trinity Wellness and Med Spa to cater to all aesthetic-related needs. Currently Dr. Glenda Goodwin and her team of registered nurses, aestheticians, and medical assistants wield lasers to banish brazen hairs, resurface and tighten skin, and eliminate pesky spider veins. In addition to family-planning and OB/GYN services, Trinity Total Healthcare also designs programs to assist with weight management while providing clients with age-defying treatments, including Botox and Juvederm and body-sculpting solutions.
